Cordova, a city in Andalusia was the first colony planted by the Romans in Spain. Its original name was Corduba. When it was made a Roman colony it was renamed Colonia Patricia, to honor the veterans and worthy men who settled it, to whom honor was due, as to Fathers (Patribus).

In 19 B.C., the Cantabrians, living on the northernmost coast of Spain, were brought under Roman control. The region was not completely subdued until 16 B.C. Augustus visited Patricia in 15 or 14 B.C.
